Claudia provided us with outstanding service. On a professional level, her ethical standards in helping us find just the right home for us were admirable. For example, just as we were about to put in an offer for a house that we were not quite sure was right, another one came on the market. Claudia did not hesitate in seeing a better match for us, nor in calling us to alert us to the newly listed home. I flew up from Sacramento within two days of the property listing, confirmed that Claudia was absolutely correct in contacting us, and, at the end of February, we received the keys to our new home on Bainbridge Island. We continue to be thrilled with our purchase and, of course, Claudia's role in finding our home for us.
In addition to her ethical standards, Claudia was indefatigable in helping us through the financial and technical processes related to buying our property. We were able to close escrow in 30 days, proof again that we had a wonderful guide in Claudia.
Finally, on a personal level, we found Claudia to be a delight to work with. Warm, authentic, and thoughtful, she made what could be a stressful process one that we sailed through for the most part, or handled any bumps with patience and good humor.
Given our experience with Claudia Powers, we will certainly recommend her and Realogics to anyone needing real estate assistance on Bainbridge Island.

Claudia Powers is a dedicated, knowledgeable agent who will truly go above and beyond for her clients. I can say with 100% surety that Claudia's expertise is the sole reason we are moving into our dream home. Her strong relationship with her peers, solid market expertise and absolute commitment to serving her clients enabled us to list and sell our current home AND buy our waterfront dream home within two weeks. Because we were contingent in an increasingly competitive market, our transaction was tricky and required detailed coordination and negotiation from beginning to end. It is a talent to successfully manage and close a transaction where all parties are pleased and happy and Claudia did just that. We wholeheartedly recommend Claudia!

My husband and I loved working with Claudia. She does her research, is intelligent and detail-oriented, and was extremely accommodating during our search as we were often not in the area, or on travel when properties would come on the market. She did FaceTime walk-throughs during broker open houses or send videos of properties on many occasions. She listens incredibly well and was definitely "on our side" during negotiations. We appreciated that level of care. Personally she is warm and extremely pleasant to work with.

Claudia genuinely represented us as buyers from showings through the final documents. She worked to be available providing insights and answers to questions we hadn’t thought to ask. Though her planned overseas vacation fell during our process Claudia remained attentive and available around the clock as she traveled. Good timing and always professional, she proved indispensable. We highly recommend her.
Claudia was definitely the key to selling our house in 4 days! She helped us prepare for our listing date, was knowledgeable about the local market and made sure every detail was covered from initial contact to closing. Claudia also worked with our busy schedule's making time to meet us at our convenience which was very much appreciated. As a long time island resident herself, it was a pleasure to work with someone that knew exactly what it would take to sell our home. Thank you Claudia!

Claudia helped me buy my new home on Bainbridge Island. With her knowledge of the community and of the real estate market, she helped make what could have been a stressful process into an easy and pleasant one for me. Claudia was always available and responsive to my questions or concerns along the way and kept me up to date on all the specifics that needed to get done. It was not uncommon for her to be working well beyond business hours, ensuring all was taken care of. I am grateful for Claudia's support from the beginning search through receiving the keys to my new home and highly recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor.

Claudia’s assistance in selling our home made for the easiest real estate transaction I could have ever imagined. As we prepared for list day, she provided expert advice to us on an appropriate listing price and current market conditions. Our house sold in 48 hours, with multiple offers, and above list price. She was spot on in her valuation and pricing strategy. But the excellent service did not end there. Claudia went above and beyond by helping us to find an off market rental home to move into. She expertly guided us through the closing process, helping to schedule everything and getting documents to us electronically to accommodate busy professional schedules. The entire transaction from beginning to end was seamless. We would enthusiastically recommend Claudia for any of your real estate needs and certainly plan to use her when we are ready to buy again.

I sincerely wanted to provide a written review of the quality service and professionalism I experienced from Claudia Powers. I have worked with various real estate agents in multiple parts of the country before but have never been so impressed by an agent. Her positive work ethic and especially her timeliness to all aspects of not only identifying a home for purchase but also throughout the settlement process and assistance with contractors post settlement are highly commendable. I confidently praise her professionalism and will happily refer her future clients.

I have a background in Finance, so numbers are my language. When I came to Claudia to sell my property, I had a hard figure in mind as to what my land was worth. Claudia had her pulse on the market and felt that we could strategically list at a higher market value. I trusted Claudia's vision and with her due diligence, unlimited resources and negotiation skills, within one week's time I had 2 solid offers and ended up selling my property for 30% more than what I had anticipated. Those types of returns speak volumes. I would strongly recommend Claudia Powers to anyone who is considering selling their property.

I was referred to Claudia through another realtor and I partnered with Claudia to purchase a new condo and sell my current one. My goal was to purchase a new residence and sell my current all at the same time which can be a complicated and stressful transaction. Claudia managed both transactions and they went according to plan without any major issues. Claudia is very accessible, knowledgeable and familiar with the area in which she works. Her and her team guided me through the complete process.

Claudia was so kind and incredibly patient with us through the whole process. We really would have been lost without her! She guided us through every single step, advised us when we were wary, and really went out of her way to be available to us. We honestly could not have asked for a better experience buying our first home.
- Erika Bellah
Claudia is awesome. When we listed our home with Claudia from afar, she created a solid plan to maximize the value of the property; from staging to getting repairs done, she was extremely helpful in handling all the details. The house looked amazing! We had tough negotiations with multiple offers but Claudia guided us through every step of the way. In the end we feel we got a great price on the home. We strongly recommend Claudia to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Claudia worked tirelessly for us and was always responsive and sincere in her communication. We were impressed with her knowledge of the market and familiarity with the community. Although we decided to pause our house hunting efforts, we plan to work with Claudia again later this year to find a new home.
